ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS

Let the Fun Begin

Enjoy the Ride…..

There is nothing more thrilling than watching a wide-eyed child as they wait in anticipation for their turn to take a ride on the Tommy train or the Strawberry Train. Our custom designed trains were locally made by Paul Oates and can be seen in town and are a mainstay in the annual Memorial Day Parade. Boys and girls enjoy taking a ride along the path and seeing the sites of the festival…when the little ones get done, let the entire family jump on the wagon and enjoy a hayride through the woods – just another way to share a memory with your child….

A Zoo is a Zoo is a Petting Zoo

Get your camera ready! Capture the memory of your child being face to face with an Alpaca, or how about a pot belly pig, maybe a baby goat! Our petting zoo is both educational and fun. Our local 4-H groups bring their animals they have raised and cared for to share with our festivalgoers. You will be awed by the knowledge these young people have and can share with you about their pet.


Safety First!

Get a free Child ID card for your child ~ this is always an important event at the festival – stop by and put safety first!

Face Paint

Once again the Amazing face art will be on hand to paint adorable animals – princess – monsters – or just about anything else – what’s a festival without face paint.


Bounce House

While shopping, let your little ones bounce their care away in our HUGE bounce house! Located in the lower field with the crafters.

As you may all have guessed, Strawberry Fest 2020 is being cancelled. Our 39 year run is being interrupted due to the Coronavirus. As a committee, our first priority is to keep everyone safe. We are attempting to work with our vendors to deliver strawberry shortcake in a different way, one that will benefit the community while keeping social distancing guidelines in mind. The bottom line – health and safety must come first. Stay tuned for further updates. Stay Safe and wash your hands!! ...

Sad, but appreciated.

Thanks for handling this so eloquently.
